There are several possible solutions for this. The cheapest and easiest is to do the following: Solution 1: 1. Get an RCA stereo plug to 3.5 mm plug. This will go from your mixer to your computer. This will not be the highest quality, but will work. 2. Get an XLR cable of the length you need. I would guess a standard one with a male connection on one end and a female on the other. Connect this to your powered speaker. Also, this is a guess as you didn't include the type of powered speaker, so I can't tell you for sure which cable to use. Solution 2: 1. An alternate idea for better sound quality would be to run a D/A converter similar to this one: http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/USBMix/It would give you a much higher sound quality for everything. You would run from your Gemini to this. From this device, you would run a USB cable to your computer, and a 1/4" cable to your powered speaker.
I can give you some questions to verify possible problems:
1. Is the mixer, and ALL connected equipment powered from the SAME receptacle? If not, ground bounce can be causing damaging transients. This OFTEN requires running power back from where amps are to the mixer using an extension cord.
2. Are ALL audio interconnectsusing balanced lines where possible?
3. Is humidity 40% or greater? If not, possible static discharges from rugs, clothes, etc. may be causing transients that reset the unit.
4. Are stage lighting equipment run from a separate source to avoid transients from dimmers and switching?
5. Is the power all have three wire cords and the building have grounded receptacles?
If your system satisfies all these the next step I would suggest is a high quality power conditioner.
A call to Gemini is in order here. Given your location, try asking if they will send you a replacement drive. It is common for the drives to contain special uncoding that will prevent a generic replacement drive from working properly. Since this unit is so new, it is likely that the company will replace the drive for you.
